A girl wishes they had a baby calf, which her father agrees with but when she enters a room she thinks she hears burglars and calls the police who get out of bed in broad daylight and drive a repeatedly exploding car to girl's farm where everyone discovers there are no burglars after all. But a baby calf miraculously appears.

If you followed that, you'll love the movie.

I think I missed something about who those two guys in the barn were, the film didn't use enough dialogue. But the film was good to watch.
